Introduction

'Mirror Object' - This tool creates a new object (image) which is a reflection of the original object (source). The image object is created behind a mirror plane. The mirror plane may be standard plane (XY, YZ, or XZ), or any plane parallel to a standard plane.

An example:

Before
After (mirrored through YZ plane)


Usage

PARTMirrorDialogv11.png

Select the source object from the list. Select a standard Mirror plane from the dropbox. Press OK to create the image object.


Options

The Base point boxes can be used to move the mirror plane parallel to the selected standard mirror plane. Only one of the X, Y, or Z boxes is effective for a given standard plane.

Standard Plane Base Point Box Effect
XY Z Move mirror plane along Z axis.
XY X, Y No effect.
XZ Y Move mirror plane along Y axis.
XZ X, Z No effect.
YZ X Move mirror plane along X axis.
YZ Y, Z No effect.

Limitations

  • Arbitrary mirror planes (ie not parallel to a standard plane) are not supported (as of FC version 0.13).
